This week was the bomb! Started off with splits with two girls that just got back from their missions. Of course I went with the one that is majorly intimidating, but super awesome! She loves the work and it was so fun seeing how much she loved it. I learned to never leave an area without talking with someone. We hit up some formers with the luck of no one being home.. but then we reached the last person on the list. When we got to her house, it wasn't her. Luckily for missionaries it isn't awkward to knock on the wrong door because you just invite them to hear the message as well. Anyway, it is so great that we were sent to that door. The girl looked about our age and she was telling us about how she only goes to church on Easter on Christmas. As we continued talking, we found out that she goes to the Mormon church on those occasions and that her mother was raised Mormon. Long story short, we were meant to go to that door, and we will be meeting with the whole family sometime this upcoming week.
Miracles really are wrought by faith. Saturday we were starting "hour of power" with our district, where we go to a members and share a message on faith, pray with them and then go to their neighbors for the next hour having the faith to find someone that the Lord was preparing for us. I was terrified haha, we went to the members home and her boy was really sick. So... Miracle #1 we went to a members house just up the street and not only were they home but they were so willing to hop on board. We shared the scripture on how miracles come after the trial of our faith. Then we went out to try our faith in the neighborhood. We only made it next door.. A man answered the door who was not interested. However we asked if there was anything we could do for him. He is having a lot of back problems so the offer was a godsend for him. We helped him rake and get his yard in better order. By the end we started talking about why we were on missions, the Book of Mormon got brought up and we talked about how God loves everyone and even sent His gospel to the Americas. We also talked a lot about trials and God's hand in our lives, by the end he accepted a book of Mormon and we are going back to help some more! It is amazing what a little service can do!
We are working with a few people and Roy is doing awesome! He came to church again! He just needs to pray. Sometimes I forget the importance of prayer. Well, I love you!
Funny of the week: We were picking raspberries outside when Sister Bothwell decided she was done, on the way inside she didn't realize that the screen was shut. Her face was priceless!
Also.. A member was telling us about someone on their mission whose name was Pag-ee-ma, he asked how she got the name and she said it was the name of someone in a magazine... pajama.. lol!
